This course critically examines arguments, analytical frameworks, and potential solutions for major controversies in international politics. What causes terrorism? What should countries do to solve global warming? Should economic distributive justice only exist within nation states or should it apply globally? What are the sources of state failure? Students confront these and a wide range of other key economic, security, and global controversies. The first part of the course critically examines sources of international conflict such as insurgency, guerilla warfare, corruption, and imperialism. The course then investigates questions of international order and cooperation with regard to international injustice, sovereignty, market-preserving federalism, environmental degradation, and problems of global governance.
